Norwegian Cruise Line launches flash sale for foodies

There’s never been a better time to embrace the food travel trend on a dreamy Mediterranean escape with Norwegian Cruise Line’s (NCL) March Flash Sale. Guests booking between 1 and 14 March can access a bonus $500 discount towards their sailing on top of up to 50% off all cruise fares, adding even more value to their next cruise holiday. Plus, they can also take advantage of NCL’s popular ‘Free at Sea’ offer, including a complimentary beverage package, shore excursion credit, specialty dining package and wi-fi.

NCL has 12 ships sailing more than 208 itineraries visiting over 170 different destinations in Europe, ensuring there is a ship size, style and voyage to suit every type of traveller, from solo explorers to couples and multi-generational groups.

With Food Tourism being hailed as the top travel trend in 2024[i] as travellers seek authentic ways to connect with local cultures, NCL’s culinary inspired Go Local and Go Gourmet shore excursions are a favourite among foodie travellers.

These excursions are specifically designed for those looking to expand their palates and enjoy an epicurean adventure, taking guests behind the scenes with local experts to uncover the stories, characters, techniques and traditions behind some of the region’s most beloved dishes and delicacies.

Options range from learning to make authentic tapas at the Bodega Casa del Marques, a 19th-century palace which transports guests back in time, to visiting a local goat and sheep farmer in Cadiz, for an inside look at the artisan process and an opportunity to sample sublime cheeses.
